When you buy a farm for sale in North Florida, it’s important that you know all about water quality and state standards – even if the property you intend to buy already has a water system or is connected to the city’s system.
What to Know About Water Before You Buy a Farm
Check out Florida Health to learn about well construction, approved laboratories for testing and more. If you have doubts or questions about a property’s water supply, talk to the seller and ask for reports that back up what he or she is telling you. Your Realtor® will be right by your side through the whole process, so he’ll be asking questions, too – but it’s important that you know what you’re looking for.
The bottom line: If you don’t have enough clean, usable water, you can’t farm.
You also need to ensure that the water is connected to the house and that there are adequate preparations for sewage and other wastewater.
Talk to your Realtor about what your rights are for the usage of the water, too. If there are streams, ponds, creeks or lakes on the property, you need to know what you’re allowed to do – and what you’re not allowed to do – when it comes to the water in them.
